hey, y'alls.

this morning, i patched my 1.8.0 to use %y{ ... } for loading YAML strings:

  invoice  y{
    ---
    id: 34843
    date   : 2001-01-23
    bill-to: Chris Dumars
    product:
      - item    : Super Hoop
        quantity: 1
      - item    : Basketball
        quantity: 4
      - item    : Big Shoes
        quantity: 1
  }

kinda fun.

here's a simple patch if anyone wants to play with it.  i know i need to clean 
up the yacc entry.  this is just proof of concept.  surprisingly,
YAML's awareness of indentation doesn't pose much of an issue.

_why
